Jedward failed to wrestle chart success away from Owl City with the internet sensation hanging on to the top spot for a third week.

The song Fireflies remained at No 1 despite the combined efforts of X Factor twins John and Edward Grimes and 1990s rapper Vanilla Ice, who came together for a reworking of the Queen hit Under Pressure.

Over in the album charts Alicia Keys rose one place to the top, with instrumentalist Andre Rieu surpassing Nigel Kennedy to become the highest ranked classical violinist in the index ever.

Journey's Don't Stop Believin' saw its double appearance in the top ten singles chart continue.

Their original version fell one place to nine, while a cover by the cast of hit US series Glee slipped to four.

Timbaland's If We Ever Meet Again, featuring Katy Perry, rose 14 places to No 3.

R'n'B songstress Alicia Keys saw her album The Element Of Freedom rise one place to take the top spot.

Similarly her Empire State of Mind (Part II) climbed the singles index, reaching five.

Waltzing Dutchman Andre Rieu rose two places with the album Forever Vienna. It makes it the highest charting classical album this century.

Speaking of his success, the 60-year-old violinist, said: "The waltz encapsulates all emotions in life, and this is why people love it. This UK 'pop' chart position is proof of that, so of course I am thrilled."
